We have an early Autumn this year, the sun is still shining and the temperatures are still ok but you can see the plants are tired and want to go to sleep. But I still have some colour in the garden too. Here are todays pictures.
STILL LOTS OF BUDS ON THE GUIRLANDE D’AMOUR
FALSE STRAWBERRY (potentilla indica)
MY ALCHEMILLA IS TIRED AND WANT TO GO TO SLEEP AS YOU CAN SEE….
We are having a heathwave ! We go from cold to hot in one day, we can’t cope with it nor can the plants. And it has been extremely dry for a while, we live on sandy gound that dries out very quickly.But never the less, I enjoy it, everything grows and grows, with a little help of the waterhose ofcourse. We can eat outside morning, noon and evening with a nice view on the whole garden. What more do you want ??!

It is definitely Autumn and the garden is not really pretty but here and there are blooms and pretty leafs. Autumn is not my favorite season as we can’t sit in the garden or eat on the terrace, it will take about 7 months for us to do that again.
